What some clients have said...
Dan Dumitriu (Barclays)
Lead/Senior Visual UI Designer
Pav is an incredibly articulate, multi-faceted and knowledgeable UX professional with an impressive ability to work at a strategic level whilst constantly maintaining focus and attention to the minute detail. Pav is genuinely passionate about her work, and without a doubt one of the most dedicated and driven people I've had the pleasure to work with. Great person to have around in your team and I look forward to working with her again.
Digital Head of Online Customer, eCommerce at
I worked with Pav over a few pieces of work, in particular the development of Virgin's speed doubling programme. Pav was practical, thorough, and coped well with quite possibly the most stakeholder review cycles I have ever encountered. This in particular was really frustrating for us and Pav not only delivered what was required but remained personable and easy to work with throughout - no sense of humour failures! I'd happily work with Pav again.
Director at ASOS.com
Pav is very easy to work with; delivers when she says she will and, importantly for me, picked up an understanding of the business and my requirements really quickly, enabling her to hit the ground running.

Tipu Ali (Barclays)
BA/PM - HSBC Retail Banking and Wealth Management
I have worked with Pav on a global based corporate banking project (Barclays) and have found her very methodical and detailed orientated in her approach. Someone who is prepared to patiently listen each requirement in detail, discuss each attribute to its completion and then do the UX design. This approach from her has been very helpful in translating some very complex functionality into successful UX designs accompanied with detailed annotations and with zero issues from the business stake holders.
With clear understanding of UX concepts and processes, it was a great working with Pav.I am sure she will always be an asset to any team she joins.
Clive Grinyer (Barclays)
Customer Experience Director
I worked with Pav on a highly complex project developing data visualisations for senior executive and analysts. Pay came into the project after it had started and I was greatly impressed by her ability to engage with the team and quickly embrace the issues. She has gone on to produce some excellent work that has resulted in a very innovative user experience. Pav is intelligent and conscientious and works well with the team and other designers. She is a pleasure to have around and I am delighted to recommend her as a clear thinking, pragmatic user focused designer.
Kristian Samuel-Camps (The AA)
Digital Transformation Manager
Pav and I worked together on a number of things, but most notably a big navigational redesign as part of the AA's digital transformation. She has impeccable analytical and design skills, and was key in taking the business through distilled models of complex information so clear decisions could be made. I couldn't recommend highly enough!
Sandra Lokas (Rufus Leonard)
Senior Project Manager
The best UX expert I have ever worked with - as simple as that:intuitive, analytical, studious, collaborative, resourceful, and above all great fun!
Digital Project Director at M&C Saatchi Group
Pav has been a key addition to the M&C Saatchi Digital Hub team and her work on the Peroni Nastro Azzuro project has been excellent.
Her positive attitude and focus on detail is very accomplished. It’s great to have a team member who is constantly keen to ensure the highest deliverables can be achieved and are clearly thought through across all platforms.
Pav’s means of enthusiastically presenting both internally and direct to client is highly beneficial in ensuring everyone feels confident towards final delivery.
I’m very much looking forward to working alongside Pav on future projects and definitely recommend her.
eBusiness Director at Fidelity International
Pav worked on a user experience project at Fidelity. I found her work to be of high standard, she quickly grasped the complexities of the financial scenario, and was a pleasure to work with.

Kaizen was founded and is led by me, Pav Chahal. With over 19+ years of experience in User Experience led projects (from product development to website and interface architecture) I have worked with a range of industries and clients.
